FREE urine test for cats aged 7+*

Why might my cat need a urine test?

Early detection is key to managing health conditions which ensures a better quality of life. Chronic Kidney Disease is one of the most common conditions to affect older cats. It occurs when there is long-standing, irreversible damage to the kidneys. Chronic kidney disease develops over a period of many months and it is quite common for owners to have not noticed any clinical signs in their cats when they are first diagnosed with the condition.

There are a number of tests that your vet may have to undertake in order to diagnose chronic kidney disease in your cat, one of which is a urine test.
